As compared to most of the states of India, this is a hot place with a temperature of about 30-35 degree Celsius throughout the year. Even in winters, it's temperature is so high in the afternoon.

Rajwada In Indore

Rajwada is a royal palace in Indore. It shows the living standard of rulers of Indore. This place was ruled by Holkar rulers then this region was occupied by Britishers. As the name "Rajwada" means "a palace of royal rulers",  this was a palace of rulers. Now it's a museum with all those memories of rulers and shows their historical presence.

After riding the bike for about half an hour through a crowded market, I reached Rajwada. I took a ticket which was about 10 rs. I headed in. A garden in front surrounded by the pillar and some paintings. In the left side, there is a temple which is a very old temple known as malhar temple.

Now it comes time to go upstairs. A museum with antiques, and paintings in front of me. I can see some statues, paintings, and other unique antiques. Statue of Natraj and some former rulers are attractive here. These are enclosed in glass to provide protection.

Rajwada was built by Marathas of Holkar rulers. This is a seven-storey building in the middle of the city. this was a 200-year-old palace built about 1747 AD, but was burnt during the 1984 riots. It was then rebuilt and designed by H.H. Usha Raje Holkar based on old design and structure.

There are palaquins and also some vintage antiques like shields, armor and many more. All of these things are unique here. Except for all these, rifles and some other weapons are no doubt interesting. The good thing is that the camera is allowed here. It took about 20 minutes to see all of this here.

This place is near to the city center. It takes about half an hour to visit this. Visiting this palace in the morning or evening is fine. This is one of the best places to visit in Indore as it shows rich history and heritage. Although there are many things to do in Indore like parks and markets.
